He already knew, but he's about to be reminded: Your whole world can change forever in a split second.

Doug Benton's heart was broken when he misread the cues of a purely sexual threesome. But when he meets Vivian, the sister of his employer's daughter-in-law, he wonders if she's as hungry for a real relationship as he is. There's just one problem: He's a Dominant. And Vivian is possibly the most vanilla woman he's ever met. That knowledge leaves him wondering if they could ever have anything that would last.

Life has left her fragile.

Vivian Norton has been dumped one too many times - the last time, at the altar. To make matters worse, she's fallen in love with the one man she most certainly shouldn't have. When she meets Doug at a Walters family gathering, her first thought of the good looking security agent is simply, What a heartbreaker! As Vivian gets to know Doug, she begins to wonder if they could have something more than just a fling and, even though she's scared, his calm strength gives her security and hope.

As time passes, it becomes more and more obvious to the strong, passionate young man and the sweet, innocent, curvy redhead that they want a relationship that'll stand the test of time. Everything falls into place, and they discover that each is exactly what the other needs.

But all it takes is one simple mistake to ruin everything.

And when Doug makes that mistake, there's no going back. He doesn't mean to. He tries to fix it, to take it back, to make it all right, but Vivian is having none of that. And when he finally forces her hand, he learns a painful lesson.

There's no coming back from some mistakes.

In this first volume of the Citadel, the first spinoff series of the popular Love Under Construction series, revisit the world of the Walters family in Louisville, Kentucky, and two characters you knew but wanted to know better. It's a story of love, loss, and what happens when "I'm sorry" just may not be enough. Is there hope?

In Deanndra Hall's stories? There's always hope.

4.5 star I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, secrets, betrayal, pain, sadness, and heartbreak. If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first The Groundbreaking (Love Under Construction Introductory Volume) Laying a Foundation (Love Under Construction, #1) Tearing Down Walls (Love Under Construction, #2) Renovating a Heart (Love Under Construction, #3) Planning An Addition (Love Under Construction, #4) This is Vivian and Doug’s story. Doug and Vivian are in love with people who are already taken. They both know they need to move on. When Doug shows an interest in Vivian she wonders if she is a replacement. Vivian has had to grow up fast and take care of her sister so she is naive and has not had a lot of experience. Doug is a Dom and Vivian is strictly vanilla. Can these two try and make it work? What happens when all is going well and one slip of the tongue causes it all to crumble? Can they make it back to where they were or is it all over? When an accident almost takes Vivian away forever will they learn to fight for each other or is it the end? I loved these characters and also the side characters. I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. I highly recommend this book.
